Wisdom Teeth Removal
« on: September 03, 2015, 03:47:29 AM »
I will (hopefully) be going in to have all four of my wisdom teeth completely dug out in the next couple weeks here, depending on how much of my surgery Medica covers.

When I went in for my consultation they assured me I would be given a narcotic for post surgery pain.  Have any of you had experience with this? What did they give you?

I'm sure I will get 15 5/500 vicodin, as this is what I got for my last surgery, but have heard tell of people getting 30 5mg Percs with two refills!!   Has anyone else had this experience? I've also heard of people getting a bottle of Tylenol 3 and some 500mg ibuprofen, hopefully that isn't the case.

When I got mine out they put me under with anesthesia and then took them out and sent me home. When they gave me the anesthesia they told me to count back from 100 but said I was laughing to hard to count but made it about 7 seconds. I was out the whole day and was 15 at the time. I got a bottle of 60 lortab 7.5s and they were gone in about 4 days. Then I got dry sockets because I started dipping the day after I had them out and got another bottle and did the same thing. My mom had her gallbladder removed a few months prior and had about 55 of her 60 perk 10s left with a refill left so I took all her meds and got her refill too and took them all and was out of everything within 2 weeks.

My mom is a beast she has the highest pain tolerance of anyone I have met my oldest brother does too. She shattered her ankle and her shoulder 6 months apart and only took narcotics in the hospital because she required surgery both times. When she got home she only took maybe 5 of her pain pills both times and took tylenol the rest of the time.

This was the first time I had ever had opiates except when I was like 5 and crushed my finger in a car door. They gave me codeine for the broken finger and stitches at the hospital and I was bouncing off the walls. They had to give me tranquilizers to calm me down.

 I loved the lortabs and percocets and I knew that if I ever tried them again I would be an addict. Once they were out I kept trying to get refills for everything and once they wouldn't give them to me I vowed to never try and get opiates again or take them. Fast forward 5 years someone had lortabs at a party and I took one and sense that day I have taken opiates every day except when withdrawaling and trying to stay clean after. From the time I took them at that party I took them every day until I became addicted and continued until I was an IV user and homeless and finally found methadone.

 Sorry for the derail it was just one memory that always stuck with me because I knew when I took them after having my wisdom teeth taken out that I would be addicted to them if I ever tried them again and I remember it vividly.

I got mine taken out back in 1983, and it was my first taste of opiates.  They had to break my jaw in 2 places to get them out, and then sent me home with percocet, but I quickly called back and said they weren't helping.  Got a script for 30 4mg dilaudids, knew they would be great for recreation, suffered through the pain with the percs, and enjoyed the dilaudids after my mouth had healed.  Thus began the long journey down Poppy Road.

I went to my childhood dentist first.  My wisdom teeth were barely coming in, so they were mostly impacted.  They'd have to be cut out.  I was concerned about pain and asked him prior to the procedure "how should I deal with the pain afterwards?"  He said I'd only have to take Tylenol.  I jumped up from the chair and immediately left, saying I'm not going to let this happen without proper pain control.  I was 19 at the time and my mother was with me.  She was mortified.  Besides, I was just getting into drugs and my RN sister told me I'd probably get a script for Vicodin.  I wanted to try that.  Plus, I really was concerned about the pain.  Fuck surgery with no pain meds. 

Fast forward a few years and my wisdom teeth are now fully in.  My mouth is bursting with teeth and little space.  I went to an oral surgeon this time.  They gave me nitrous oxide when I first got into the room, then fentanyl and versed via IV for the procedure.  When I went home I got a script for 16 7.5mg hydro.  They were gone in about two days.  I also got a script for antibiotics.  I was considering trying to get dry socket for more meds.  Smoking (one of the causes) didn't cause it though. 

I got my best score from a dentist right after I graduated college.  I had a lot of cavities, and the dentist took 2-3 out each week over the course of 6 weeks.  Each week I'd get a script for 16 10mg hydro.  I also got one before I even went in b/c my sister was friends with the dental staff.  I was in mild pain, played it up, she called and said I had an upcoming appointment, so they called it in.  After that I started buying poppy pods, that progressed, and here I am.

I think it depends on your doctor.  Also if it's a dentist or an oral surgeon.  Some get nothing, some small scripts of hydro, some get larger scripts, some get percs or better.  It just depends.

The ibuprofen will help swelling and pain from inflammation better than any opiate when it comes to tooth pain from a rct or extraction. But if you get any Vicodin consider yourself lucky. Get some ice packs, and don't smoke or use a straw. If you must smoke, place fresh gauze over the sockets and again after smoking. Don't eat anything small like rice that can get trapped. And don't rinse and spit. You need to keep that clot there or you'll risk getting a dry socket.

Good luck and feel better.

What my fellow CDA , St. T said!  I just want to reiterate..NO SMOKING, NO SUCKING THROUGH STRAWS, NO SUCKING ANYTHING FOR 72 HOURS!!!!  Also, if you use dip...don't!  All the above mentioned can lead to dry socket and if you get one, you will wish for death!!!  They hurt like hell and even if they give you an opiate for a dry socket it will not even touch the throbbing in your face and head!

I have found that most oral surgeons, IF they give a narcotic at all, tend to favor Vicodin or Vicoprofen.  They take all the fun out of surgery!!!!

Good luck with the surgery!

I have to chime in and say count yourself lucky that you live in the US not the UK. Here they just use local anaesthetic to remove the teeth and the only take home script you' might get would be one for antibiotics, and instructions to take ibuprofen and/or paracetamol. Severely impacted wisdom teeth might warrant a general anaesthetic, but no script for post operative pain.

There's a reason Brits are famous for having shit teeth and its basically a lack  of pain relief post procedures and sedation when undergoing the procedur.

Of course if you are rich enough to go private you can probably expect a similar experience to that which you guys receive.

Along with ibuprofen, You *can* do SUPER GENTLE salt water rinses; as said above, absolutely no spitting, just let it run out of your mouth. It tastes like crap, but really helps bring down swelling & flush out foreign particles.   Also, no drinking from a straw or soda containers. This will sound dirty, but I don't know how else to say it- suction is bad-- it will up the chances of dry socket.

Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.
Then practice losing farther, losing faster:
places, and names, and where it was you meant
to travel. None of these will bring disaster.

thanks Zoops but I'm counting on the meth. induced blood thickening and faster clotting (side effects of stimulants) will make that baby clot quickly and well.

I have the salt water on hand and can't help but worry about dry socket.

the dentist also prescribed antibiotics but I'm going to avoid them unless I absolutely have too.

so do you agree that meth may actually help here ?

I have yet to have mine pulled but the day of the surgery is quickly approaching.

Why don't you want to take your antibiotics?

No methamphetamine is a toxic deadly drug it helps with nothing, not a single thing
Sorry to be blunt but you tend to glorify meth like its a natural aid or some kind in a lot of posts; it's not at all

this site was built with meth.

it gives me the motivation and desire to pursue such tasks ... no way would I have attempted to work on computer systems like this (that i don't know well) now that I am out of a work environment.

you are right - to me, it's a wonder drug that enables me to produce much quality output so without meth, we wouldn't be here chatting now.

It's not toxic it's just a very potent stimulant that i use weekly ... with NO physical dependency.

yep, I love my opiates too but they always end up with me being chained to the drug, the clinic and my doctor.

so crystal meth it is ... you don't like being stimulated ? why not ? that rush of the dopamine release, in the short term, is bliss !
